    Some say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. We’re not going to get into specifics here, but science tells us that this may not necessarily be true. However, science DOES tell us that wine, specifically red wine, has some extensive health benefits. So much so that it allegedly helped a man grow to the old age of 107!

    Smirnoff has gifted us with some pretty funky vodka flavors over the years. We’ve seen it all; from flavors like cinnamon churros and fluffed marshmallows to wild honey and kissed caramel, we thought Smirnoff couldn’t possibly come up with another flavor to their repertoire. Nonetheless, Diageo has just announced their launch of Smirnoff Sourced: a group of three new flavors to Smirnoff’s line that are made with REAL fruit.

    What Came First: the Beer or the Bread?

    Beer / February 8, 2016 / No Comments.

    We all already know that a cold brew can work wonders after a hard days work, but we had no idea that our beloved beer actually had a positive impact on the development of ancient civilization. You heard that right, a recent article from Tech Insider brought to our attention a new scientific theory that our “nomadic hunter-gatherer” ancestors were incentivized to settle down and build civilizations once they found areas in which they could grow grain. Now obviously grain is the main ingredient in beer, but it is also used to produce one of our favorite foods, bread! At first we thought our ancestors would have been much more interested in baking up a storm, but according to scholars there’s circumstantial evidence that proves for our ancestors, a cold brew sparked more interest than a sandwich.

    Of late, the nationwide news cycle has included some usual suspects (politics, weather, sports etc.), but there’s been one story in particular that has garnered a lot of well-deserved attention: the Flint Water Crisis. If you don’t know what’s going on, here’s the skinny:
    Back in April of 2014, the city of Flint, located in Michigan about an hour outside of Detroit, changed its water source from the treated Detroit Water and Sewerage Department, to the noticeably less clean Flint River. The corrosive new water caused lead from old pipes to seep into the city’s water supply resulting in widespread lead poisoning in anywhere from 6,000 to 12,000 children. This is clearly a big bad deal.
